Mobility and access to safe and accessible travel in Toronto is important for all seniors.

Toronto Transit Commission (TTC)

The TTC offers the following travel discounts and options to seniors:

  • Seniors  who are 65 years or older are eligible for a different TTC fare but they must carry valid identification
  • Wheel-Trans provides a safe and reliable accessible transportation option for persons with disabilities to travel with freedom and dignity
  • Blue priority seating is for customers who are elderly, have a disability or are pregnant

    • Note: The app does not summon emergency services. Always call 911 in an emergency.

The TTC also offers a Travel Training Program. In this program you can receive free training on the bus, subway, streetcar and community bus systems to improve your transit experience. For more information, please contact or call 416-393-4111.
